I’m on a Mac Pro (early 2009) and use a WD My Book as a fifth hard drive. It was fine one day, gone the next. And the light went out. The drive doesn’t show in Disk Utilities nor in Finder. However, I can still feel the drive running and the small window on the side still shows capacities. I don’t think the drive is really bad. I might add that I also have Windows XP in Bootcamp, and the drive can’t be seen there either in Disk Manager.
I’ve tried different cables and different ports, ones that I know do work. Connection is Firewire 800.
Any thoughts, ideas, or help would be much appreciated. Thank you,
